Hey guys,

I know that foreign currency can be swapped for TND upon arrival and that when leaving Tunisia, you can swap the amount you swapped into TND back into Euro at the airport. What I do not know about is how I can swap TND to USD/EUR/GBP and vice versa inside of the country - and - in large amounts $10k-1m USD and how to bring this out of the country.

I would like to attract Tunisian capital to a few overseas projects. Could I, as an example, convert their 150k TND to 50k EUR at one of those bureau windows at the airport, put the cash into my bank branch and wire it out of the country or are there currency controls/money movement restrictions?

Thanks,

SAA

I cross-posted this in the digitalnomad subreddit before I realized there was a Tunisian subreddit! Thought y'all might be able to help...

Need to be outside Schengen for a few months. I've been everywhere in Eastern Europe, so thinking about Tunis for a few months starting in Dec. I like renting a house for a few months, cooking, hanging out, working, etc. Not really a tourist any more, but I do like taking side-trips...

In particular I am curious if I should live in the eastern suburbs (Carthage, Sidi, Masra), and if so, how hard is it to get around without a car?

Also, how slow is the internet? I don't need super-fast, but do need a consistent connection. Looks like there are a few coworking spots in Tunis that might work?

Any advice appreciated.

Why aren't there any national prevention life lines or crisis text lines for citizens in Tunisia National emergency numbers for the police and ambulances aren't enough sometimes people want to deal with these things privately and usually don't want to cause trouble for their families and friends I was scrolling through my newsfeed the other day in an app that I use frequently and I saw a post that had a list of suicide crisis lines by country I was curious whether Tunisia had one or not as I expected it didn't it pissed me off even more after doing some digging on the internet and I couldn't find anything on several websites that offer these type of help lines It clearly shows that our country doesn't deal with this situation properly and most people here in Tunisia aren't aware that mental health is extremely important for one's well being

I recently discovered Pheradi Majus and enjoyed walking around the site. This place wasn't listed in any Tunisia guide book that Ive read and I'm now interested in finding other lesser known sites to visit.

Does anyone have a suggestion of another site to visit that is a hidden jem?

اهلا!

Je suis Francais, la trentaine, software engineer, et ma femme est Franco-Tunisienne (data scientist). Nous vivons aux US, mais nous reflechissons a nous rapprocher de nos familles respectives.

Dans notre domaine, le marche du travail est plus attractif en Europe a priori, mais je me demandais ce qu'il en etait en Tunisie. Y a-t-il des gens qui bossent dans l'IT parmis vous ? Si oui, pouvez-vous m'en dire un peu plus sur l'etat du marche du travail dans le domaine en Tunisie ? Je suis interesse par:

  • la base: si ca embauche, tout simplement
  • la base (bis): les salaires
  • le type de boites qui embauchent (startups? fonction publique? multi-nationales?)
  • les endroits ou le marche est le plus attractif (Tunis j'imagine, mais y a-t-il d'autre boites)
  • la culture au travail: est-ce que le travail a domicile est facilement accepte, les relations entre collegues, etc.

Par ailleurs, je n'ai pas la nationalite Tunisienne. Dans quelle mesure est-ce un handicap ?

PS: comment sont percus les Francais en Tunisie globalement ? Quand j'ai rencontre des expats j'avais un peu l'impression qu'ils vivaient en communaute fermee, la plupart de parlant meme pas l'arabe... Ca ne me fait pas rever. Vous avez des exemples de Francais qui arrivent a s'integrer ?

PPS: desole pour le post en Francais. J'apprends l'arabe, mais je n'ai pas encore le niveau pour ce genre de choses !

Been trying out crossdressing and loving it, was wondering if there are any communities (preferably in tunis or Ariana) for crossdressers or transgenders. Thanks

I will be flying into Tunis around 11:30 and have about 8-9 hours before my next flight. I'd like to leave the airport and grab some food for sure, and then possibly see a sight if it is close enough. Any suggestions on where to eat/what to see in my few hours?

So I'm going to Tunisia for a month or so today, I am 21 and have tri-nationality, including Tunisian, but I was born and raised in the UK. I am currently a student in England as well. I read on my passport that the British government will not give me any assistance in foreign nations because of my other nationalities, so my question is will I be stopped at the airport and made to join the army lol? I can barely speak Arabic, or French, and I'm aware Tunisia still uses conscription. Am I likely to be stopped on arrival?

THIS POST HAS BEEN LOCKED BY AN IDIOT. HE ASKED FOR PROOF, I GAVE IT TO HIM AND NOW HE WON'T REPLY OR UNLOCK THE POST. FOOL.

Now I know cops are generally viewed as the bad guys since they have quite a history in the torture and corruption domains but how were your personal encounters with them ?

How can law enforcement improve in this country ? Would love to hear any suggestions .

Have you ever called 197 ( Emergency number to call the police ) ? How long did it take them to show up ?
